A taste of the 70-200. Handheld while standing in the crowd. out on 200mm with 1/320, F/2.8 and ISO3200.
I don't know what other would say of the quality of the lense or whatever concentrating on technical aspects....

But I think this a just a truely great photo !

Thank you another photographer (Canon) held the lense and tested it. He agreed on it being much more heavy then the Canon version, but as he said; You can just feel the quality just by holding it. So the future is bright!

Looking at your portfolio, you have a knack for capturing dynamic moments in a performance, and the picture you posted is a great example. Were you using Nikon DX cameras before the K3? How much of the metering and white balance do you leave up to the K-3, and how much do you have to manually compensate for?

I haven't used aps-c cameras since 2010 before signing with Ricoh. I always use spot metering and the white balance is on Auto. In RAW its not that important. And thank you for kind words!

Great! Was the AF still quick and decisive in these conditions?

Great shot. I'm of the opinion that great hardware isn't so much helping to get the shot, but rather not preventing or getting in the way. This lens didn't get in your way of capturing a great moment.

I'm curious. That isn't a length nor venue I'm familiar with, but at 3200 iso there is little or no cropping. That means you were 7-10 meters away? The depth of field is not razor thin, but enough to isolate the subject. I suspect you would be moving between performers, following them across the stage, watching them and trying to get some neat pose or action requiring quick focus.

I imagine that there are lots of throw aways, either not interesting or something wrong.

Anything with the lens body combination that got in your way?

Thank you! No, it was no problem for me..I was in the crowd..Due to pyro, they didn't want us in the photopit (safety). Yes i was standing in front of the soundboard..i think that is about 7-8 meters. This picture is not cropped. That is correct..i dont run back and forward, i follow them with the lense..and wait until the right moment. When they are head banging, i shoot a burst of 3-4 pictures to capture like this. My style of working and shooting, requires a GOOD and fast AF. This lense is so good in that way. But i still mean, that we need the FF to see its full potential. I get some throw aways..but its getting less and less

It is nice to see that Pentax is putting out something that requires no apology, just works. Sharp, fast focus, nice IQ.

Now i'd like to see someone with the same experience and skill handle the 150-450. Someone trudging through swamps, northern Europe is fine, I think they get even less light than we do. I know how hard it is to get a great shot in those conditions, but I'd like to see a few.

They say they want to aim for the pro's too...So they have to deliver now. But that doesn't mean that they will stop making all the other good stuff they have! I didn't have the time to test the 150-450 good enough, so i gave it away to a fine pentaxian here in Oslo. You can see his testing in the 150-450 thread!

(picks up his jaw from the floor) This is astonishing, I can count the dudes hair on his left hand....

The sharpness is insane, and the lack of noise at ISO 3200 is unbelievable...
